When to use chat support:
Chat is a great method to use if you're looking for quick answers to simple questions and problems. Our chat technicians are more than happy to help you troubleshoot and understand issues relating to email, your control panel, FTP, etc. They can also help you with many sales and billing questions and explain most HostGator policies and procedures.
When to use ticket support:
Our live support agents will escalate your issue to a ticket when it requires more attention or time than average. Immediately after a ticket is created, you will receive an email confirming your ticket has been created and has been placed in our 24/7 support queue.
Our best administrators work in our ticket system all the time. It is the best place to go to get your complicated issues resolved in a timely manner.
When to use phone support:
We are available 24/7/365 over the phone. Just like in chats, our phone support representatives can address most of your basic issues and concerns. The most complicated issues will require a support ticket to be submitted.
